News coming from Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado Ekiti.
At least, 200 students and a Lecturer of the Ekiti State University(EKSU), Ado Ekiti are currently being tried by the Senate Committee on Examination misconduct, and risk being expelled from the institution if found guilty by the committee of being responsible for some stolen question papers in the school.
Another 10 members of staff were arrested by the institution’s security personnel for selling fake examination clearance certificate, known as ‘Green Card’ to students.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Assistant Registrar, Information, Mr. Olubunmi Ajibade, in Ado Ekiti on Monday.
The affected students and the lecturer were accused of stealing question papers and writing examinations inside a TV viewing centre outside the campus, during the second semester of the 2010/2011 session.
Mr Ajibade said the offence, may see those found guilty either rusticated or expelled from the university.
He noted in the statement that the suspects involved in the sale of fake examination clearance certificates were members of both academic and non-academic staff. DailyPost gathered that they were caught selling the exam permit to students at N3,000 each.
The school authorities introduced the permit to stop students who were indebted to the institution from writing the second semester examination. But the indicted officials allegedly circumvented the rules and helped themselves to make quick money by selling the certificates.
Confirming the development, EKSU’s spokesperson, Mr Victor Babayemi, said 20 students were caught buying the fake exam clearance certificates from the officials.
